Hi Impactmakers!

Do you want to end the week off feeling satisfied? Then come join the monthly Greenjobs.nl cleanup in Westerpark at 15:00 - 17:00.

The sustainable jobboard of The Netherlands Greenjobs.nl has been organizing monthly clean-ups around Amsterdam to leave the city cleaner than we found it. Every month we find similar amount of trash on the streets as well as in the park (including Redbull cans, Coca Cola bottles, cigarettes and much more...). Do you want to contribute to a cleaner city? Then you are welcome to join Team Greenjobs on the 26th of August. We will provide the necessary equipment for you.

Do you want to join? Great! Please let us know via info@greenjobs.nl so that we can make sure we have enough equipment.

Meeting spot: in front of Conscious Hotels at 15:00 on the 26th of August.

See you there!

The afternoon program will start with a keynote by Marcel den Hollander, followed by the launch of our Circular Textile program in Amsterdam and Fashion Fail Forward.  

  • 15:00 Circular Textiles in Amsterdam
    This 2-year program funded by the Municipality of Amsterdam, Stichting DOEN Foundation, and the Goldschmeding Foundation, in which 3 partners (Metabolic, Impact Hub Amsterdam and Bankers without Boundaries) investigate how  through a systematic approach a cohort of innovative companies can be found, scaled up and financed to stimulate the transition to a circular textile value chain.

  • 15:15 Keynote speaker: Marcel den Hollander works as an independent researcher and industrial design consultant to industry in circular product design and business models for the circular economy. As one of the first he studied industrial design at the TU Delft followed by a Ph.D in circular product design and with over 20 years of experience in commercial industrial design for renowned design studios, designing consumer goods from (food)packaging to office furniture, we are proud to have him at the Ecosystem day.

  • 16:00 Fail Forward: As part of our Circular Textile Program we are organising a Fail Forward Fashion edition, in which the founders of circular fashion companies Loop.a Life and Makers Unite & United Repair Center talk about how they failed with a positive outcome. By making ‘learning by doing’ a shared good, we all help each other one step further in the transition to a circular fashion and textile industry.
